Just wanted to say I appreciate what you're doing. I'm a therapis and work in mental health with addictions, so often what I do goes unnoticed or unappreciated. I'm a young professional, and I recently bought my first Benjamin sport coat from you and may order another 2-3 within a week having bought my first. Fantastic construction, fabric, and VALUE

Ok, let's get'em made, Ben! I am already itching to put the jackets on and they are still weeeeeeks away! happy.gif

Excuse the sweatpants

Thoughts on fit? Tad too tight? Sizing up would be too big in shoulders though.

You should be able to let the waist out a little? If you do that, and don't put on anymore weight, it should be okay.

Is the buttoning point a little on the high side? I have some jackets with the point there, and some lower, and I prefer the lower ones, but I'm not sure what is the more "traditional" position.

It's tight in the waist and the chest, and a little long on the arms. Button stance is too high also.

Thank you! Just a quick question - what makes you think it's too tight in the chest?

This is a size up:

On the rust jacket, the right lapel (your left) doesn't lie flat. It slightly curves and comes off your chest. Your second sportcoat (gray) doesn't have that problem. The lapels lie flat. Also, no X at the buttoning point (meaning the waist fits well). I also think the shoulders fit on that one. It does look a little short, shorter than your rust one even though it's a size larger. It has a wider lapel which looks better than the slim lapel on the rust jacket. 

 

Do you have a link to the second sportcoat? Nevermind, I think it's one of his first generation blue line models with a natural shoulder. It looks good on you and I suggest you definitely keep that one.

Thank you for that explanation! 

 

The second sportcoat is actually the light green one online now -- it's just awful camera quality.

It might be tough to let it out. My tailor said he couldn't do it on the Bella Spalla, but I think someone said that they were able to let theirs out just a touch.

This is a completely different jacket. Different cut. Different factory. I prefer this one on you. Wider lapels and lower stance are better. Shoulders don't look too big to me in this picture. Are they more padded than the Bella Spalla jacket? I have been using self-control to not buy this exact jacket in 42r.

Any thoughts? Should I be worried about the tightness now while I can still return it?

 

 

If you're going to wear it casual unbuttoned mostly then keep it. It looks sharp as is. I prefer my SCs that way actually.

This is the 42 and I'm a big fan. What trousers do you think would go well with it? Brown?

In the picture I'm wearing a grey flannel and since
It's a light green, I find there isn't enough contrast.

Thank you! I do like the color a lot.

Are those green sport coat pictures more representative of the true color of the jacket or are the online pictures better?  I have been going back and forth on that jacket and your pictures are lovely.

This was me.  My bella spalla fit very well in the shoulders but was a touch tight in the waist.  My tailor was able to let it out ever so slightly.  Now, if I gain any weight . . .  Here is what it looks like after it was let out.  (BTW, the color is way off in the pic.)
